Obituary for Ralph Rinaldi

Ralph Rinaldi, 88, of Enfield, loving husband of the late Vera Rinaldi for 57 years, passed away peacefully in his home at Suffield by the River on Friday, March 1, 2019. He was born in Enfield on May 30, 1930, the son of the late Anthony and Frances Rinaldi.
Ralph served in the US Army during the Korean War. He was employed as an engineer at Pratt and Whitney for 30 years.Ralph enjoyed traveling, cooking, playing poker and blackjack, trips to the casino, and going to the movies, but his greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially his cherished grandchildren.
Ralph and Vera spent their winters in Hobe Sound, FL and summers at Sun Valley Beach Resort in Stafford.
He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He leaves, to cherish his memory, his loving and devoted daughters, Linda McGuane and her husband Martin of Enfield, Lisa Sciarra and her husband John of Enfield, and Claudette Courtier and her husband John of Victoria, Australia, his grandchildren, Melissa, Michael, and Christopher McGuane, Elizabeth Cudnik and her husband Tyler, Rick and Tony Courtier and seven great-grandchildren, his loving sisters Josephine Noto of Suffield and Maria Cushman of Northampton. He was predeceased by his brother Ignatius (Iggy) and his grandson, Gary Courtier.
He also leaves his dear friends, Dr. Frank Taylor, Joyce Morin, and Richard and Judy Pinkman.
Ralph’s family would like to express their gratitude to owner Celia Moffie and the entire staff of Suffield by the River for their kindness and love. A special thanks to June Williams for her devotion to both Ralph and his wife during their time at Suffield and to Donna McKinstry for her love and support.
Thank you to nurse Carol McPartland from Vitas Hospice and their team for their compassion and support, and to Dr. Arthur Skalski for his years of dedication and compassion to Ralph.
A most loving thanks to Ralph’s wonderful caregivers from Homewatch, Monica Downer, Delena Lilly, and Chevell Hutchinson.
Monica was more than a caregiver to Ralph, she was a blessing to him and his family. She was tireless in her love and devotion to him, always making him laugh, keeping him safe, and sharing her heart so freely. Everyone will remember Ralph as a kind, quiet, and gentle man. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. Dad, we love you and Mom so much.
A funeral mass to celebrate Ralph’s life will be held at 10am on Saturday (March 9, 2019), at Saint Patrick Church, 64 Pearl Street, Enfield. There will be no calling hours and burial will be private and at the convenience of the family.
